Loose Ends

Monday morning and I should be packed up, heading out the door...but I'm not quite ready. Someone please remind me next year to start christmas preparations a little earlier! I was still making presents at gone midnight last night...the trouble is, in my head I have three more days, but reality is the clock has stopped. Nothing is wrapped, either.

I feel like I'm chasing my tail, trying to catch up. I had a lovely parcel in the post several weeks ago from Maxine (no blog!) as part of the christmas swap organized by French Knots, and only got to take pictures yesterday.

A shaker angel

handmade decorations

moleskine volant notebooks

There were also some truffles, eaten during the unwrapping! Thanks, Maxine, it's a wonderful present!

Remember my nephew Ben, of the wonderful chicken coops? He lost his car keys a few weeks ago (eventually found), so I've made a key chain for the chicken boy. I love this fabric. it makes me smile. For some reason I'm more pleased with this than virtually anything else I've made.

Well, that's it. I'll stop rambling. Time to sign off, and tidy up the other loose ends around the house.

I wish you all a happy and peaceful christmas with your loved ones. Back after New Year.

Have a great trip up Diana and a lovely celebration with your family. Look forward to seeing you before the year is out.
love the key fob... stitched perfectly.
Why don't you take the wrapping with you and sneak off and do at your leisure later?

Merry Christmas Diana, have a good trip to see your family. I'm off to Australia to see my daughters and granddaughter. Love the key ring, I've wanted to make these for ages.
